GEM Reader

I'm enclosing a picture of one of your youngest readers, my grandson Jack Winbigler, age 2. I think about the third word he learned, right after 'mommy' and 'daddy,' was 'tractor.' He always has to have his ride whenever he visits.

After a hard day at grandpa's place riding around on one of my old tractors, he asked for tractor pictures to look at before going to sleep. We gave him a copy of Gas Engine Magazine, and this is how he fell asleep. He is definitely my grandson, because I like to read the magazine while falling asleep, just like him.

If he keeps this up, he'll have his own subscription before too long.

Corn Sheller

Our museum has a crank operated corn sheller in its collection that was manufactured by Treman, Waterman Co. of Ithaca, N.Y., date unknown. It has the name 'Cornell' stenciled on the side and the number 23.

The corn sheller has recently undergone some restoration and we are looking for any information that might be available on this piece of equipment. There were a number of modifications made to the sheller before it arrived at the Village. It appears that it originally had a squirrel-cage fan in the base (now missing) to separate the red dog (chaff). Also, whatever device was in place to expel the stripped cobs is also missing.
